The best vacation packages in beautiful Phuket, Thailand roll in during May - in fact during the tail end of summer. This is the season when the weather changes daily from debilitatingly hot to strong rains that catch you at the most inappropriate time. Even better hotel deals will be offered during the monsoon months, which is unfortunate, for who would want to be in beach-laden Phuket when you're going to be grounded indoors?

The town, however, is full of character that it is still very much enjoyable even when it's raining. There are many activities with which to busy yourself, so it's not that big of a trade-off if you decide to avail of hotel deals from May to around November.

Here are some great ideas to enjoy Phuket during bad weather:

1. Pamper yourself at a spa

Enjoying world-famous Thai massage treatments while it's drizzling outside is an indulgence you have to experience. The setting and the ambience will be magical, not to mention serene and relaxing. And when you leave the spa, you won't have to endure the buzzing streets and the crowds, because everyone would have been indoors already trying to stay cozy.

2. Enroll in a Thai cooking class

The exotic and punchy flavors of Thai cuisine will feel more deliciously rewarding if you understood how it came to be. Whip up your own Thai dishes by joining a cooking class - perhaps at the Pum Thai Restaurant & Cooking School. According to Phuket-Travel-Secrets.com, Pum Thai holds 2 sessions per day. Morning classes are at 11 AM, while afternoon classes start at 4. The school is located in Patong Beach, along Rat-U-Thit Road, a short distance from the shopping mall Jungceylon. Depending on your skill, you can choose from 7 different types of classes. Prices start from THB 450 baht for a single dish and recipe book. It will be great if your souvenir for home would be a course of Thai dishes you prepared yourself.

3. Play Ten Pin Bowling

Ten Pin Bowling is particularly great for kids. And in Phuket, you'll have no problems finding an alley to satisfy grumpy little ones. In fact, the town has as many as 6 bowling alleys. Take your pick from Patong's Ocean Plaza Bowling on Bangla Road, Rock & Bowl located at the intersection of Na Nai and Sai Nam Yen Roads, and SF Strike Bowling at Jungceylon. There is also CS Bowl on the second floor of the Big C Supercenter along Bypass Road, the Pearl Bowling Lanes on Montree Road in Phuket Town, and the Ocean Bowl at the Ocean Shopping Mall on Tilok Uthit 1 Road, also in Phuket Town.

4. Watch a movie at the local cinema

Phuket has 3 theaters: SF Cinema City at Jungceylon in Patong, and the SFX Coliseum at Central Festival and Coliseum Paradise Multiplex in Phuket Town. Where better to watch artsy and edgy Thai films than at the country's favorite resort destination?

5. Learn (or just watch) Muay Thai

Head to the specially built stadium on Bangla Road corner Rat-U-Thit Road and learn the basics of Thailand's most popular spectator sport. The stadium gets more exciting in the evenings, when most matches are held.

See, it's not so bad if you're stuck indoors in Phuket. Next time you stumble upon great hotel packages for a Phuket vacation, such as Best Western Allamanda Laguna 's free night promos and early-bird discounts for the rainy season, do reconsider.
